Barnyard Commandos (Playmates Toys)



Barnyard Commandos
Playmates Toys
1989-1990

Barnyard Commandos was a great cartoon that unfortunately only lasted for 13 episodes back in 1990. Playmates toys hoped to find success with a toy line that sadly was as unpopular as the television show.

Much like the heads of the original TMNT figures, Playmates went with a very soft, very squishy plastic mold. This made the toys resemble more so dog chew toys than action figures. Potentially this this lack of quality only served to further cement the lack of desire for kids to buy them.

Captain Tusker Chitlins*General Hamfat Lardo*Private Side O'Bacon*SergeantShot N' Sweet

Before the line was cancelled, Playmates produced an impressive sixteen figures over two waves. Additionally, they also released two vehicles. That's not bad considering the line was eventually destined for clearance bins.
